Julia Kim is a veteran casting director who's worked on such eclectic independent films as "But I'm a Cheerleader," "Starlet" and "Spa Night." She's also a really cool, smart, interesting woman whom Christy feels lucky to call a friend. Christy's fellow Los Angeles native talks about growing up in the San Fernando Valley in the '80s as the daughter of Korean immigrants, her early years performing as a classically trained pianist, working on "The Simpsons" during the show's '90s heyday and her 20-year career as a casting director, which includes the upcoming Sundance favorite "The Last Black Man in San Francisco." Julia also discusses her consulting company, invAsianLA, which helps Asian actors navigate the casting process, and offers tips on making your best impression during auditions. It's an especially informative episode of A La Carte, so we hope you enjoy.
